Difference between pommade, wax, and gel?

im trying out a new slick back haircut but the only thing I've used is gel for my hair, but I've been told that gel isn't right for styling. so which is better and what products would u people recomend?

  • Gel goes in wet then dries hard.

    Wax has relatively low shine, and has a fair bit of hold right away. It doesn't dry and can be reshaped.

    Pomade gives a little control with shine. It doesn't dry either. There's a range in how much hold dofferent pomades offer

  • Pomade is oil or water based, used to make your hair look shiny.
    Wax will give it a glossy feel and look.

    I like water based pomades the best, you can use stuff like Layrite or Suavecito
